This is really a question about your web server, not Mailman, but
assuming Apache, you might be able to do this as follows:

Assume your existing ScriptAlias /q/ is

ScriptAlias /q/  /path/to/q/cgi-bin/

You could change it to

ScriptAliasMatch /q/(?!mailman/)(.*)  /path/to/q/cgi-bin/$1

If Apache recognizes that negative lookahead assertion (and I'm not
sure it does), this will do the same as the original except for
/q/mailman/. Then you can add your "ScriptAlias /q/mailman/" and it
won't be preempted by "ScriptAlias /q/".
